Following a hot weekend of racing for the tandems at the Lehigh Valley Velodrome, the 'concrete crater' will host another big night of racing with the the North American Omnium Championships on Friday, July 13. The UCI sanctioned international event will name the 2007 Omnium champion.
With events for the sprinters as well as endurance riders, T-Town fans will witness a strong international field battle for points to make the final 5 kilometre 'omnium shootout' with bonus primes every lap and big money on the line. Riders from the New Zealand national sprint team, Trinidad and Tobago, Australia and all the hometown favourites will mix with a host of riders from Canada, Norway, and Puerto Rico.
The gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and racing will begin promptly at 7:30. To view ticket prices for all Valley Preferred Professional Race Series events go to http://www.thevelodrome.com/tickets.php.
